for four years is going to be a lot better than four more years of president obama. and i think this is the first time, christine, where people have had a chance to see side by side the two candidates. maybe 50 million, 60 million people watching. and i think he's going to hone in on the top issues that americans care about. and that is how to get our great country out of debt and back to work, with 8% unemployment for 43 months and gas prices doubling. and adding $6 trillion to the national debt. these are clearly things americans know we're on the wrong track on. i think what you're going to see mitt romney talk a lot about his plans to reverse that trend. policies of obama that have not worked. and why romney's plans will work. i think that's the heart and soul of what this election is about. >> you know, he has been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the ec

obama make a lot of excuses as to why, when he was on that stage four years ago, not much of what he ever said was going to happen occurred. >> you know, on the subject of winning and losing, chris christie, big supporter of mitt romney, has come out and said he expects a big win for governor romney in this debate. we talked to brad woodhouse yesterday from the democratic side. this is what he said about christie's comments. >> i think he set the bar high for mitt romney, and the bar should be high for mitt romney. i mean, he's gone through this campaign. we're five weeks out, soledad, and he's not said how he'd pay for his tax plan. we're five weeks out, he hasn't said how he'll shore up medicare or social security. to protect benefits instead of cutting them. the bar is really high for him. i think chris christie set it even a little higher. >> so, sean, how high is the bar for governor romney? >> i see the folks from the obama campaign have talked down the expectations from the president so many days in a row, that today i expect them to come out and say that the president's got a

for two years fighting for obama care. >> reporter: the president made his points in a slower, more laid-back manner, often looking down, sometimes appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top-down economics, where folks at the top are doing well, so the average person making 3 million bucks is getting a $250,000 tax break, while middle class families are burdened further. >> reporter: romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> but virtually everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. >> all right. go ahead. >> so if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i would say, absolutely not. >> reporter: the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months, he's been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is, never mind. >> reporter: but he also showed flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from their candidates, except obama's was directed a the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i'd make, before -- >> two m

. >> congressman, a thought here. mitt romney spent two years making the case against president obama's first term. three days of a national convention and acceptance speech to do so. is this a question of simply restating the arguments he's already made for larger audience, or does he have to take this debate in a new place, in a new direction? >> i think the debate is really the game changer for governor romney. he needs to do very well. i think he will do very well. and it's all in how he communicates his message. i think he will do a better job than he has in the last two years of communicating that message. >> what makes you say that? i'm curious about the -- >> we know he's capable of it. he took it to newt gingrich, the best debater. >> let me finish my point. then you're welcome to -- for two years he's been trying to hone this message at a time when i think as a big surprise to a lot of people the president's doing better on the economy than he probably deserves to be doing. >> even in the polling. >> what makes you think in a high pressure environment, his first presidential debate he's

to -- >> we have four years of -- you know, we have four years of experience of barack obama with doubling gas prices and unemployment at sustained highs. you have the experience of that. that's what the american people see. now they're going to get to hear from mitt romney, talk about his vision for the next four years to get the economy growing. they know that they've been buried. the middle class has been buried for the past four years. they know that experience. it doesn't matter how you want to spin it. the past four years, we're not better off. >> only one person who is spinning at this moment, and that would be you. but i appreciate you joining us. barbara comstock, always nice to talk with you. >> okay. thanks, soledad. >> appreciate that. you can watch the debate on cnn or go to cnn.com. other news? john berman has that for us. >>> a pennsylvania judge has temporarily blocked the key component of that identification law. voters will not have to show a state of proof photo i.d. in order to cast a ballot in the presidential election. >>> $165 million, this may sound like a steal. obama

expected, then obviously that's going to play to mitt romney's favor. the obama campaign, as they said all along, soledad, don't look at the individual number. look at the trajectory and if you look at job numbers as a whole over the last years, things are heading in the right direction. not fast enough. other thing, remember, pay attention to the battleground states because you look at places like ohio, unemployment there is about 1 percentage point below the national average. and you are seeing president obama do pretty well in the polls considering. we will be keeping an eye there, too. >> appreciate it. >>> ahead this morning, the romney campaign is going to weigh in. we are speaking with georgia republican congressman phil gingrey. we want to get john to update us on today's top stories. >> good morning. people in almost half of the states in the country now at risk of the deadly outbreak of fungal meningitis. at least five people are dead. 35 people infected in six states. the steroid medication linked to the outbreak was sent to 23 states. more infections are still possible. that st

that is looming at the end of the year. and here is one excerpt from the speech that we'll be hearing from mitt romney later on this morning. it goes after a chief theme of president obama. not only over his presidency but over his first campaign. here it is. it says, quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. soledad, yesterday some of his senior foreign policy advisers had a conference call with reporters. they were sort of laying out some presidencies of past that they think mitt romney might share some of these principles with. and the presidencies that they mentioned were president john f. kennedy, harry truman and even bill clinton. they also threw ronald reagan in there. but i
